On my server, kills per boss are listed as well as dates of first kills.Some used the list as a yardstick for competition (We killed Hogger before you, nyah!), some as a guide on which guilds to poa.. recruit members from, and some as a record of server history. Many guilds have spearheaded the progression, only to crash and burn later.Now that the "competition" is over for me, I rarely check the list anymore. However, it's nice to see other guilds progress towards the Black Temple. It's a great instance, and I do wish that more people could see it. Currently only around 160 players of 10000 can do so. I'd hate to see it end up like Naxxramas.If you are about to transfer to a server in order to raid, checking out the progression thread is a good idea. In addition to showing the stage of progression, it also gives you a sense of the size of the raiding community. If there's only a handful of guilds listed and they're all in Black Temple, you might not want to transfer if you're wearing just 5-man/heroic blues and epics. Conversely, stagnated progression with only a few (or none) spikes in progression can be a sign of a server with a lot of infighting. If you don't like drama, transferring might not be a good option. Low-population servers are generally bad as well. If things don't work out with one guild, you might get "stranded" there, unable to do content that's interesting for you.In my opinion, the most promising progression thread contains several guilds doing bleeding edge content, a sizable number doing mid-tier and a lot doing low-end raiding. That's usually a sign of a healthy community, and you're quite likely to find a nice guild that's on your level of progression.
